performance: losing 1.1 lb a week
*Please note, my username's nothing to do with Star Trek. I just do a lot of walking and my first name means "star".*
I'm a 48-year old married woman and a US-Brit living in the UK, who teaches university English. Until my mid-30s, I was pretty slim but over the years I got so big that eventually I couldn’t even do up the seatbelt on an aeroplane. In April 2013, I made a commitment to be my body’s best friend, rather than its worst enemy, and set a weight loss goal of 122 lbs. I’ve lost the majority of that now and am out of the obese category. My approach is to genuinely ENJOY the process of getting healthy and slim, and make it sustainable for the rest of my life. No magic shakes, gimmicks or pills; just a good ol' fashioned healthy diet and lots of exercise. I love to hear from other members, whether it's with comments, commiserations or celebrations, so please feel free to get in touch.
